Debt Recovery: Fees

PRACTICE AREAS

​Range of fixed fees) for a business to business debt that is undisputed


Court Claims


These costs apply where your claim is in relation to an unpaid invoice which is not disputed and enforcement action is not needed. If the other party disputes your claim at any point, we will discuss any further work required and provide you with revised advice about costs if necessary, which could be on a fixed fee (e.g. if a one off letter is required), or an hourly rate if more extensive work is needed.

Debts  - Business to Consumer Debts/ Individual Debts

The claiming of debts from consumers must comply with the Pre-Action Protocol for Debt Claims involving an elaborate procedure. Our fees in pursuing such claims as set out below are for straight forward claims and do not include the costs that may be incurred if additional information is sought by the debtor and lengthy correspondence is entered into as a result.  

Anyone wishing to proceed with a claim should note that:

  1. The VAT element of our fee cannot be reclaimed from your debtor.

  2. Interest and compensation may take the debt into a higher banding, with a higher cost.

  3. The costs quoted above are not for matters where enforcement action, such as the bailiff, is needed to collect your debt.

Our fee includes:

  1. Taking your instructions and reviewing documentation

  2. Undertaking appropriate searches

  3. Sending a letter before action

  4. Receiving payment and sending onto you, or if the debt is not paid, drafting and issuing claim

  5. Where no Acknowledgment of Service or Defence is received, applying to the court to enter Judgement in default

  6. When Judgement in default in received, write to the other side to request payment

  7. If payment is not received within 7 days, providing you with advice on next steps and likely costs

How long will it take?

Matters usually take 2-4 weeks from receipt of instructions from you to receipt of payment from the other side, depending on whether or not it is necessary to issue a claim. This is on the basis that the other side pays promptly on receipt of Judgement in default. If enforcement action is needed, the matter will take longer to resolve.
